  1. Last night I made a pineapple upside down cake using Betty Crocker Gluten Free yellow cake mix. It was delish!
  2. Gluten Free: Day 1

    Thank you all for the warm welcome! I am so happy to get any information that I can. I know that I will see improvement in ways that I didn't even realized needed improvement! I just heard back from my son's pediatrician this morning and he was indeed biopsied last year when he had an upper endoscopy. I am glad that he does not have Celiac at this time, but I was also looking forward to a possible explanation for the issues that he has had. We will keep goign on his current plan and I will have him tested again in a few years. Thanks again for all of the support!
  3. Gluten Free: Day 1

    Hello all! I was diagnosed with Celiac and have started my new way of living. I am pretty much asymptomatic, and was diagnosed through biopsy because I went to have a colonoscopy and upper endoscopy due to severe anemia. I really believed that my anemia was due to heavy periods, but they wanted to rule out colon problems since my grandfather died from colon cancer. Thank goodness my GI doctor wanted to do the upper endoscopy also. He told me yesterday that he really was not expecting me to have Celiac, but that was indeed the case. I am also planning on having my 11 year old tested as he has had digestive issues for the past few years, and I am wondering if this could be the answer to a lot of questions. Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself. I have already learned a lot by reading some posts, and can see that this is a very supportive community! -Holly
